Angi Paris Lizemore is the founder of Single Parents Helping Hands - a single parents Facebook group used to ease some of the pressures associated raising children on your own.
Lizemore joined Joanne Joseph on-air to share how the idea came about and how it has served mothers and fathers.
We find ourselves often in a situation where we all have normal jobs but we just weren't making ends meet. So we were put in a position were we put in a position where we were helping each other just get through a difficult time and then that grew from helping each other to helping other.— Angi Paris Lizemore, Founder of Single Parents Helping Hands
The group has multiple committees run by six members.
We have six committee members that kind of orchestrate this kind of organised chaos.— Angi Paris Lizemore, Founder of Single Parents Helping Hands
We have second-hand clothing that we reuse or pass on to families in need. We also have a division where we gift unwanted household items to families that have lost everything - whether it be to fires or women that have come out of abusive situations, we try and help them start over.— Angi Paris Lizemore, Founder of Single Parents Helping Hands
